A Final Tribute

On May 30, 1986, Governor Thomas H. Kean dedicated New Jersey's first state-operated veterans' cemetery as "a lasting memorial to those men and women who put their lives on the line to defend our country's honor and freedom." On January 3, 1989, the cemetery was named for the principal guiding force behind its development U.S. Army Brigadier General William C. Doyle.

The facility was funded jointly by the state and federal governments and is managed by the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. It is open to eligible New Jersey Veterans; residents who are members of the Armed Forces or reserve units on active duty at the time of death; certain dependents and certain merchant marines and civilians who have been awarded veteran's status. Rules and eligibility requirements were established within the guidelines of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Washington, D.C.

The cemetery is located in Arneytown, North Hanover Township, Burlington County on Province line Road, which intersects Route 664 to the north of the cemetery and Routes 537 and 528 to the south. It's central location, 15 miles southeast of Trenton, makes it easily accessible from the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway and Interstates 195 and 295.The cemetery is a contemporary memorial type with all grave markers flush with ground level. It covers 225 acres and was designed to accommodate 154,000 veterans and their family members.

Our affiliation with the veterans cemetery goes back a long way, back to it's inception and initial ground breaking. We have been providing flowers for memorial services and placing flowers at grave sites since the time when there were only a handful of plots in section "D". The Doyle veterans cemetery is now the final resting place for many thousand veterans and their spouses. We have also been involved in every Memorial Day observation and make the tributes for nearly every branch of the service and those for many auxiliary groups and service organizations. I have many veterans in the branches of my family tree and had a grandmother (God rest her soul) who was a very proud and active VFW officer. I made many wreaths and decorations for her post's activities and parades before this cemetery existed

Cemetery Cones from Chesterfield Floral Co.
We have been delivering floral tributes to the cemetery for many years. As I said above, some of our customers live a great distance from their loved one and cannot or do not drive. We are here to see that your wishes for remembrance are fulfilled.
We deliver bouquets of flowers in many styles and colors. Perhaps you like pinks and purples like the colors she always wore. Or reds , browns and oranges because he loved the Autumn season. Make your wishes known, and we will deliver on the day, or days you chose. Cemetery cones like you see here start at $35. and go up, depending on your choice of flowers. We charge a $7. delivery to deliver and place your tribute. You may call us and arrange to have flowers delivered up to a year in advance for your choice of dates.

We can also arrange to take a picture like this and send it to you via text message on your smart phone.
Our offerings for the Christmas season
The cemetery allows small blankets to be placed on the graves in early December. This sort of tribute is not permitted at any other time of the year, as it would shade and kill the grass. Our blankets are made to order from fresh cedar, white pine and juniper greens from our farm in Chesterfield. We decorate with mostly natural materials like pods, pine cones, eucalyptus and magnolia foliage, and embellish with velvet ribbon and silk poinsettias as shown here.
Wreaths, like the one below, are also a nice option. We strongly suggest displaying flat to the ground as shown, as the wind tends to knock those displayed on an easel over (and sometimes, away, FAR away!). We also offer cemetery cones like those we do year round. Although for the Christmas season they are made with fresh greenery and silk and dried decorations instead of fresh flowers.
